Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS)
Undergraduate students seeking specific learning interests not satisfied through other academic departments may create an individualized program of study through the Baccalaureate Contract Program.
Creating an individualized program of study is both challenging and rewarding. Students choosing to create an individualized program of study should be prepared to:
- Propose a program of study totally different from any other undergraduate degree offered by the University of Memphis
- Choose appropriate courses to form at least two separate and distinct disciplines
- Determine how the proposed program of study will aid in achieving academic and career goals
Students have the option to customize a degree plan with transfer credits and may also earn credit hours through work experience or professional training. All of our courses are offered in formats tailored to fit the busy schedules of adult, non-traditional students.
